March Into Moisturizer!
We all love beanies – they make us look like adorable snow bunnies. But by the time spring rolls around, “rusted root” isn’t just the name of a band anymore! It’s an apt description of your vitamin D deprived lid. No need to tear your hair out with worry, for spring is the prime time for rejuvenation. And, much like how we floss extra well before we see the dentist, here are some home remedies to help you strengthen those strands before you reunite with your favorite hairdresser.
Flowers, birds, bees, you know the routine. Life is about to erupt once again in the world, and your hair should be a part of it! And while everything is becoming fresh and new, perhaps some nature-based remedies for winter-damaged hair are just the thing.
Coconut oil will rock your body, inside and out, literally! When used in cooking, it can aid with weight loss, help defend your system against bacteria and viruses, and best of all, increase brain function. As a topical treatment, it can defend against dermatological damage, while helping to moisturize skin, and it can do the same thing for your hair and scalp. For the best results on dry hair, you should warm up (careful not to overheat) enough oil to saturate your hair. Then, cover it with a warm towel for 30-45 minutes, wash with a moisturizing shampoo, and be sure to use a light, oil-based conditioner.
If coconut is not really your thing, other oils that can help by using the same method are jojoba oil (which also strengthens hair), castor oil, almond oil, and the old standby, olive oil.
But don’t forget, just because a product is made by a major brand, does not necessarily mean that the company does not have your best interest in mind, along with the earth. More and more companies are being owned and managed by hairdressers who are dedicated to both. So, DO check out that avocado oil shampoo or shea butter conditioner. And if you have any questions, ask your hairdresser at Stylist Reservations, find out which hair products work best for your hair type, and spring into a more naturally beautiful you!
